Shrieve Chemical Company, a portfolio company of Gemspring Capital, announced that it’s acquired Gilbert & Jones, a premier distributor of industrial chemicals throughout North America.
Based in New Britain, Connecticut, Gilbert & Jones delivers a broad product offering to customers across various industries and applications — including aerospace, fasteners, automotive, electronics, and other industries.
“The Gilbert & Jones acquisition aligns perfectly with our long-term growth strategy and allows us to further diversify our product offerings and expand our reach into new markets,” said George Fuller, CEO of Shrieve. “Together, we will capitalize on our collective strengths and capabilities to provide unparalleled service and solutions to our customers. We are excited to welcome the Gilbert & Jones team to the Shrieve family and are looking forward to our combined success.”
Gilbert & Jones maintains strategic partnerships with 200+ suppliers and 750+ loyal customers, and offers general industrial chemicals, branded proprietary chemicals, and other related products. As a world-class chemical supplier, it serves the electroplating and metal-finishing industries.
Additional capabilities include international procurement, multi-sourcing, regulatory compliance, less-than-truckload, inventory management, and other logistics.
“Joining forces with Shrieve represents an exciting chapter for Gilbert & Jones,” added Fuller. “We have always been dedicated to delivering high-quality products and services to our customers. With the support and resources of Shrieve, the existing G&J team is confident that we can take our long history of exceptional service and innovation to the next level.”
